Default What am I doing wrong??????

Hi guys I'm new to this board and I could really use some help I hit a plateau about 4 months ago and I can't get past it. I am 5'7, 145 lbs wanting to get to about 135 lbs. I have changed trainers and nutritionists and cooks several times. ANY imput would be much appreciated!!!!!! I see my trainer 6 days per week. 3 days are mainly cardio, 1 day upper body, 1 day legs, 1 day core. My diet is a compromise between what my nutritionist thinks is healthy and what Ive been reading on bobybuilding. A 1600 cal/ day low fat low sugar diet. A sample day would consist of:

high fibre cereal 150 cal
1/2 cup skim milk 45 cal
1 scoop whey 90 cal
6 oz Chicken 300 cal
1/2 cup rice 110 cal
1 cup mixed veggies 100 cal
1 orange 80 cal
1 can tuna 170 cal
1 scoop whey 90 cal
6 oz Halibut 250 cal
1/2 cup rice 110 cal
1 cup mixed veggies 100 cal

When I whine to my trainer she tells me that my weight isn't changing because I'm replacing fat with muscle. I find this hard to believe since my clothes don't fit any different. Other people tell me that now that I'm a mom my body composition is different and will not change. Ive tried clen, tried stacking caffine asprin and effedrine, but haven't lost a pound. Any suggestions?

Well I'm not to good with the fat loss stuff but something that caught my eye was:

You also say you've changed nutritionists several times. This is one of those wishy washy fields where the word nutritionist could mean a lot of things. But what it comes down to is this. If you are paying someone to help develop your diet then they should be able to design it to specifically fit your needs while remaining as healthy as possible. There really should be no need for a comprimise.

Probably what you need to do is find a registered dietician or a nutritionist that has expertise in the area that you are looking for. I'm pretty sure that in Canada it's a lot like it is here. The word dietician is protected whereas the word nutritionist is not or at least not in all places. Meaning anyone can call themselves a nutritionist in those places.

The terms are interchangeable but the problem with nutritionists is that they don't necessarily all have the same qualifications. Dietician is a much more specific thing than nutritionist as far as credentials go. Specifically you want someone who has credentials as a sports dietician or a sports nutrisionist; or fitness dietician/nutrisionist.

On the weight work I'd suggest doing a fullbody 3 times a week rather than what you are doing now. Something very simple and with plenty of intensity. It may help a lot with your fat loss as well as building muscle.

I was right, Nikki look here:

Edmonton's in Alberta, right? So that would mean that the term registered nutritionist is protected there, I think. The reason I'm saying all this is because I've seen people get swindled by so-called "nutritionists" who's only qualification is they read a book.

Thanks for the info......Ive been referred to different nutritionists though gyms. This is usually a paid one hour consultation to formulate a diet. The problem is that all of these nutritionists have been more concerned with overall health than with weight loss. For example, all 3 people that I met with have told me that atleast 3 servings of fruit per day is important because your body needs the vitamins. On bodybuilding websites, Ive come to realize that anyone serious about weight loss eliminates almost ALL the sugar from their diet. So, what I'm looking for is a happy medium between the two. I'm not competing so I want a more permanent diet. But I know that my body needs a more severe diet to really lose the weight. So if anyone can compare diets and let me know what works for them?

All good advice from eric, I agree on the total body workouts, and I would suggest the UD2 (ultimate diet 2.0) by lyle Mcdonald. Its not an easy diet, its centered around carb cycling, but I have seen the most success in droping body fat using it, as have countless others.

www.bodyrecomposition.com

I wont lie, its a major commitment, and its kind of a pain in the ass, but you will drop bodyfat if you follow it to the letter, no question.

First, have you ever heard about the book called "The Eat-Clean Diet" by Tosca Reno. It's great because it's not really a diet; it's a life style change so the weight stays off. It really is a great book and easy to read. I've read the book front to back and learned a great deal. She also trains regularly so the eating habits are based around weight training and activity. You can find it at Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble

Also, not that this has anything to do with it, but what do you take your whey protein with?
